Overview

A look at the races of the world by a lovable bigot, capturing the proud history and bright future of racism in one handy, authoritative, and deeply offensive volume

Meet ?C. H. Dalton,? a professor of racialist studies and an expert on inferior people of all ethnicities, genders, religions, and sexual preferences. Presenting evidence that everyone should be hated, A Practical Guide to Racism contains sparkling bits of wisdom on such subjects as:

· The good life enjoyed by blacks, who shuffle through life unhindered by the white man's burdens, to become accomplished athletes, rhyme smiths, and dominoes champions
· The sad story of the industrious, intelligent Jews, whose entire reputation is sullied by their taste for the blood of Christian babies
· A close look at the bizarre, sweet-smelling race known as ?women,? who are not very good at anything especially ruling the free world
· A crucial manual to Arabs, a people so sensitive they are liable to blow up at any time. Literally.

Including a comprehensive glossary of timeless epithets, with hundreds of pejorative words for everyone from Phoenicians to Jews, A Practical Guide to Racism is an essential field guide for our multicultural world.

    Not Really a Book, Not Really Funny

    This might be worth about a dollar. It's less a book than a booklet. Although it's about 230 pages, only about 100 is actually text. There are is a lengthy section with definitions a variety of racial slurs. If these were amusing (and they're not) it would still be too long.

    This is followed by the 20+ page index, then the "footnotes", *one per page*.

    Beyond being a bit of a rip, there are about three actually funny moments. The rest is tedium. I don't think it could have taken more than a week to throw this together. Then all the author had to do was get his associates at "The Daily Show" to endorse it, followed by profit.

    Not worth the time or the money.

    Awesome!

    This is definitely for someone with a sense of humor! I loved it and can't wait to let my friends borrow it :o) I would steer clear if you are a person who cannot detect sarcasm and are easily offended.

    Funny read

    As far as the book content goes...HILARIOUS! This would have been a 5 star for me if the footnotes were included on the pages themselves instead of the back

    Funny. Overpriced though.

    Overpriced

    Super offensive and very funny, but way over priced. The last 100 pages each are largely blank except for one or two sentences at the top of the page. The content is poorly organized with all the footnotes at the back of the book, making them difficult to read in context, which is a shame because they were probably quite funny. Over all this book will make you laugh, and then immediatley make you wonder if laughing at it means that you are going to hell.
